Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of Mexican fare at Canada's only Chronic Tacos locations on West Broadway and West 4th Avenue.

- CT's allure is not just cheap yummy mexican food but they rely on a pandemic culture that appeals, draws and keeps customers. – Nicholas Simon, Beyond Robson
- Food: try the beer battered shrimp tacos, baja style. So good! But definitely not a light lunch. Great for watching games and hanging out with friends – Christina D., Yelp, 2/25/11
Chronic Tacos, whose tacos and burritos were voted some of the best in Vancouver in 2011 by readers of Georgia Straight, culls its recipes from the salsa-splattered pages of a family recipe book filled with three generations of Mexican delicacies. Chefs marinate and grill juicy morsels of steak, chicken, and pork several times a day, then tenderly tuck them into preservative-free corn and flour tortillas. To add extra zest, dollops of house-made salsa and sour cream perch atop tacos and, in the event of an emergency, rain from sprinkler systems.
